PET FOOD PROCESSING | December 2020 | www.petfoodprocessing.net

" With more image
capture options, our
list of applications
has grown to include
products like kibble
and pet treats. "
John Lawrence, Sightline Process Control

Evolution of detectors
Today's detectors can monitor activity and provide feedback
about the equipment's performance while also providing key
data for electronic records. This information is vital for streamlining supplier audits and warning operations of potential
equipment failures to avoid downtime and properly schedule
regular maintenance.
One significant trend is The Internet of Things (IoT) - the
network of connected " smart " devices that communicate seamlessly over the internet. For pet food processors, IoT devices can
transmit information that is useful across multiple process lines
and provide valuable data from connected metal detectors.
Eriez Magnetics' evolution of its Eriez Xtreme metal detector
interface is icon-driven and patterned after today's cell phones.
" In practice, this means operations receives instantaneous visual feedback from the screen in real-time to make decisions regarding the equipment's set-up and performance, " Spurgeon said.
Keri Klein, Mettler Toledo's product manager for checkweighers, notes there is a trend today toward increased equipment integration.
" Advancements in design and technology have allowed
companies to integrate multiple inspection functions into one
system, thereby reducing the system footprint, increasing productivity and the communication between machines, " she said.
" Our checkweigher modular designs allow our systems to be
future-proofed for the ever-changing manufacturing needs. "
Mettler Toledo has had a checkweigher/metal detector combination system in the market for a while and has recently expanded its portfolio to include a checkweigher/vision combo
and checkweigher/x-ray combo.
One challenge is providing solutions for extreme conditions,
from a hazardous location to harsh washdown environments.
Through Mettler Toledo's R&D initiatives and work with industry experts, the company has developed cutting-edge designs to meet these extreme needs. The development of its new
washdown-capable checkweighers is a case in point.
" Our ProdX software offering can ensure product quality
